"Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost."
Intimacy with God, the presence of God does not cost. Any person can meet with God regardless. Jesus paid for that. But all else costs. I don't mean money, though that may be true. But everything, every little step towards a greater experience of the Kingdom. Every kind word in a world of hate, every little bit of hope given. It costs.
Tonight I'm feeling the cost.
It will pass, but its worth noting.
